Just a few hours ago, 343 Industries announced Halo Online, a multiplayer-only PC exclusive using a heavily modified Halo 3 engine.
A closed beta test will be performed in spring, but only in Russia according to 343. They said, “Theoretically, any expansion outside of Russia would have to go through region-specific changes to address player expectations.” This quote informs us of the troubles when porting a game to another area or language, due to this, Halo Online will most likely be delayed for a few countries. Currently, 343 has no intentions to bring Halo Online to the Xbox One as they want to reach out to Halo fans on PC. Halo Online will be developed by Saber Interactive, though it seems likely 343 will help out as well. The game will interestingly be published by Russian MMO company Innova Systems, which hints at Halo Online being a MMO-type game.
What do you think gamers? Will this game fail, or will it be an enjoyable experience?
